    Two exciting things arrived in mail - first one is fakebusker's excellent briefcase that I just happily gave to Brainstorm, second is a small accessory I designed so that he can wear his back kibble in the "right" direction - with cannon up, that is.

    The part clips behind the landing gear and can stay on all the time - fully hidden under the nosecone when transformed.

    It took a moment for me to realise what you'd done. Great work! Very subtle.

    Hi I do not have a picture handy, but yes the gun still attaches to the nosecone in vehicle mode. In fact in vehicle mode you can't see this attachment as it is completely hidden within the cavity above the front landing gear.

    Now that I've finally secured TR Brainstorm, I'm looking to get this piece off shapeways, but tolerances concern me. What's the best material to order this piece in to prevent breakage?

    Strong flexible and polished would be structurally fine and the cheapest. The other options are generally just nicer aesthetically but more fragile.
